ref. 1133 G
Vintage 1971 Chronograph
Genuine 1970s CORFAM racing strap
Beautiful 1971 Heuer Monaco - Grey-Black version of legendary Steve McQueens chronograph from 'LeMans' movie with the world's first automatic chronograph movement designed jointly by Heuer, Breitling, Buren and Dubois in 1969, cased in square shaped, waterproof stel case.
The icon of 1970s design.
It has early serial number stamped between the lugs.
The watch is generally in very good original shape, both dial, and case (see pics), and the movement has been fully serviced in June 2018: cleaned and oiled to ensure good time keeping. Chrono function works as should: starts, stops and resets to zero.
